Was channel surfing last night and was passing Palladia when something caught my eye. Was that a multi-colored school bus cruising across the desert? I stopped and looked closer. Yes, why yes it was. Not only multi-colored, but with a deck built on top and an extended cargo carrier attached to the back. Folks were sitting on top of the bus with instruments and lit smoking items, while the inside of the bus included an old reel to reel tape deck. Odd thing was, instead of some hippie-type music as the soundtrack, it was the country stylings of Kenny Chesney. Seems ol' Kenny not only is aware of the 60's, but also familiar with the bizarre cross-country voyage of Mr. Kesey and The Merry Pranksters. Now, the tune was middle of the road country-pop, but the recreation of The Magic Trip as the basis for the video certainly earned Mr. Chesney several bonus points in my book. Pretty sure that the reference will be lost on most, if not all, of his current fan base.

And I thought this was an ad for Priscilla, Queen of the Desert...a fine film frankly.

And, another thing...what's it w folks replying to you, then "de-replying"? Seriously...I don't ck this place often, but when I do, I damn well don't want to be wasting my time w phantom posts once removed.

I mean, really. How bad can it be? Someone actually sees you posted a reply so you remove it?

What's this forum coming to?

I do like the subject line: "love...wife...problem...baba"

Hmmm; interesting sequence, N'est-ce pas?

Stop pandering to skies.

As for "de-replying", it's not like anyone else's post can look like anything but a literary and intellectual masterpiece when preceded by my incoherent drivel. With every post I write I am supplying the masses with an opportunity to make themselves look at least 10 times more sophisticated and well-rounded.

And the whole "not checking" thing, there is certainly a trend around here bordering on disinterest. Would this have anything to do with the termination of the "backway" into off-limits recordings? Or have we finally reached the point where we have talked about virtually everything Dead-related? If the latter is true, there is the prospect of traffic picking up soon as many of us start to develop dementia and forget what we've already talked about. There is always a silver lining to every cloud.

What's funny is that the post I provided was provided, in part, to arouse discussion, so I only noticed it when 4 replied but were all so favorable...the one that started "agree completely!" was especially nice...when I gathered the family together to show them, "see? these fine people here, they think the WORLD of me, so will you frickin cut me some slack?!!" only to find out my ardent fan base had been sliced by 25%!?

And, what if it was because that poster was "eliminated" or as Monte would have it, "deleted"!?! Perish the thought!

My fans, eliminated by some nefarious behind the scenes conspiracy of gawd knows what IMMENSE proportions.

And then, the spammer showed up.

CoinciDENSE?

I ask you...

Be careful what you put out there to arouse anything. This is a family show and we have standards.
